30 Universal Strategies For Learning - TeachThought

30 Universal Strategies For Learning - TeachThought | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
So how can this help you as an educator? Use them as thinking prompts or discussion cues. Consider them as starting points for project-based learning. Have students use them as “empty shells” to fill with self-selected learning topics to create learning paths of their own. Use them for Genius Hour.

The big idea is that these kinds of “brain actions” are not only the kinds of tasks you can use to create assignments, but more importantly are the kinds of acts that promote inquiry-based understanding. So rather than start with a topic–fractions, metaphors, or racism–you can simply insist on the cognitive action itself. Learners can choose topics of their own, or you can offer a range of topics.

Summer is winding down and many of you are back in your classrooms and back to the hectic days of fall. In her new post Sarah Cooper invites you to linger in summer for a bit longer and consider what the slow pace of summer can teach you about, well, teaching. “The more time I take, the more sophisticated the students’ work becomes, and the more I understand how they learn,” she writes. Sarah teaches U.S. History at Flintridge Preparatory School in La Canada, California and she is the author of Making History Mine. - See more at: http://blog.stenhouse.com/archives/2014/08/21/striving-for-slow/#sthash.ZamyQO4W.dpuf
